Marcus Smart agrees to 4-year, $52M contract with Celtics

Marcus Smart

Still, he has proven to be an integral part of Boston's success over the past few seasons, as they've gone on runs to the Eastern Conference finals.

Restricted free agent Marcus Smart has agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract extension with the Boston Celtics, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Smart was reportedly frustrated by his negotiations with the Celtics and considered accepting a $6.1 million qualifying offer from the team to become an unrestricted free agent after 2018-19, according to a report from NBC Sports.

"Keeping Marcus in a Celtics uniform was a top priority, and we're excited to have accomplished that", said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge.

Smart was Boston's sixth overall pick in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft out of Oklahoma State.

Smart averaged 10.2 points, 4.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game during the 2017-18 season. In the playoffs, he averaged 9.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.7 steals per game. In 15 postseason games, he averaged 9.8 points, 5.3 assists and 3.7 rebounds in almost 30 minutes per game. He's played in 261 career regular-season games, starting 83 of them.

Smart is going to see his playing time reduced in Boston next season with Kyrie Irving returning from injury, but this appears to be something which he is cool with after signing this contract extension.
